welcome back. 7:42 on this tuesday morning. we're looking at a dry scan across the region on our dry
7:43 am
scan hd radar. otherwise the temperatures are not too bad for this morning hours. 45 degrees under partly cloudy skis. we will see plenty of sunshine. 56% relative humidity, the barometer is on the rise as the high pressure builds in and dew point at 33 degrees. it means it's pretty dry out there. 42 in salisbury, it's cooler on the west. you see hagerstown at 39 and oakland at 34 degrees. winds around 5-10 miles per hour now. they may get up to 15 later in the afternoon and gust as high as 20 miles per hour but they won't be nearly as strong as yesterday. that is because low pressure moves out to sea and high pressure moves closer to where we are is that will help diminish the winds that are creating by the gradient. look at the northwest wind, it will be a faiily seasonable day as we climb into the upper 60s and stay there for the entire week it looks like. you will see the rain on sunday night, maybe a shower then if
7:44 am
anything at all. the chances are that it will 65 degrees for the high temperature at the eastern shore. note the winds higher than elsewhere. 1020 miles per our gusting to 30. that's because, again you will be closer to the low pressure moving off into the atlantic and high prie pressure building in d it. 58 degrees and still breezy but not as windy. 10-15-mile-an-hour winds gusting we will enjoy plenty of sunshine with a few clouds in. that's for hagerstown and really and slightly to the west of there as you get into the higher elevations, though. high temperatures may only be in the low 40s. 41 for the low tonight under mainly clear skies. we will stay near 60 degrees pretty much through the week will it's upper 50s to near 60. you're looking at plenty of sunshine through most of thh week, veterans day, and friday and saturday, too. and maybe a late shower as i mentioned overnight saturday and
7:45 am
sunday, but just an outside chance of that. lookkng at what is happening on the roadways, candace dold with a traffic edge. >> reporter: a lot of annoyed drivers out there especially on the top end of the beltway. the upper loop lanes at harford road only 11 miles per hour. you will find the delay. on the jfx, the congested ride ú%ere as well, 30 miles per hour road. let's talk about 83 at northern baltimmre county in fact. it's because of appear accident on the southbound lanes. you will find it at belfast road. now the good news is that it's finally in its cleaaing stages but the damage is done and we do have delays leading up toward all of the activity. you could always use falls road or york road as the alternate routee once you get past all of that and make the check on the beltway. let's takeea live look at pikeville, that is going to be a bit of a cramped ride and even the inner loop stretch as well up toward the jfx. that is the usual deal, though. as you go around the bend on
7:46 am
695, at liberty road, checking out the outer loop lanes, you ccn see a straight stack of cars outer -- bridges on the outer loop direction. seeing the cramped ride the ordinary deal from owings mills heading on the southbound lanes down toward the beltway. and in carroll county an reported. it's a crash involving a bus, no passengers are on board, so you will find the activity on route 32 at washington lane. that's a look at the morning travels. patrice, over to you. thank you, candace. still ahead, a kansas professor goes on a junk food -iet to prove calories are what coonts when it comes to losing weighh. we want to know what you think. can junk ffod be a part of a can junk ffod be a part of a healthy these sausage pancake bites are an amazing combination. combine that with the taste, and it's a combo combo. huh? dunkin's new sausage pancake bites. sausage inside maple-flavored pancake -- 3 for just $1.59. america runs on dunkin'.
